May Open Houses
Minneapolis is growing, and will continue to grow. Done right, population growth can help our city become a healthy, sustainable, and thriving place for everyone.
Minneapolis 2040 is a draft Comprehensive Plan that shapes how the city will grow and change. The draft covers topics such as housing, job access, the design of new buildings, and how we use our streets.
Over the past two years, the people of Minneapolis have told us a lot about their vision and hopes for the future of our city. A main theme we heard is that as the city grows, everyone must benefit from that growth. Historically, not everyone has. This draft plan is one opportunity to undo barriers and overcome inequities created by a history of policies in our city that have prevented equitable access to housing, jobs, and investments.
The draft plan reflects the result of two years of engagement with the people of Minneapolis, including over 50 meetings and conversations with thousands of residents, business owners and others. Your input directly helped us establish priorities and inform the content of the draft plan. We now invite you to provide feedback on the completed draft plan.
We want to hear from you!
